Riding with Heart

Somerville Heart Foundation is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to supporting young people and adults born with all forms of heart conditions, known as Congenital Heart Disease (or CHD).

Let us introduce you to Zeph Forest of AFC Legal who is taking on a cycling challenge to support our work…

I have formed a great relationship with the staff at the charity’s Ipswich office and for lack of a better phrase, they are very close to my heart for many reasons.

I used to enjoy cycling with Colchester Rovers cycling club only stopping around 4 years ago because of ill health. So when I discovered that Somerville Heart Foundation had places in the Ride London Essex 100 Cycle ride taking place on 29 May 2022, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to get back on my bike and help raise some funds for this excellent cause.   Riding 100 miles will be challenging, however as a Criminal Defence Attorney and Army Veteran, I’m always up for a challenge.

I know Ipswich well having grown up there and I really feel that this is a great cause to get involved with by supporting a locally based national charity!

I would be incredibly grateful if you could show this amazing charity some love and donate via my Just Giving Page – Zeph 100. Whatever you give will go straight into supporting young people and adults born with heart conditions.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and theirs.

Warm Regards,



Zephaniah Forest, AFC Legal
